Evie,

Slowly but surely the local Register Offices are putting their records online...
North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland, Gateshead... Newcastle stuck a bit at 1870 !

Thank you

I've just searched the northtyneside marriage system for 1840-49 for gofton and not a single return.

I have to find the father of Robert and Richard, anyone any ideas?

Hi,
As evie said previously, the two boys appear on the 1851 Census. Their parents are shown as Joseph and Dorothy and there are several other children too.
This would appear to be their marriage - prior to civil registration I'm afraid so no father's names given.....

Bishop's transcripts for the church of St John, Newcastle-upon-Tyne:

Marriages solemnized in the Parish of St John in the Town & in the County of Newcastle upon Tyne in the Year 1834
No. 615
Joseph Gofton of the Parish of Gosforth in the County of Northumberland and Dorothy Gofton of this Parish were married in this Church by Licence this Fourth Day of May in the Year One Thousand Eight Hundred and Thirty Four.
By me, John Fox
This Marriage was solemnized between us, Joseph Gofton
                                                                     Dorothy Gofton
In the Presence of us, John Donkin
                                    Hannah Foster [Fosters?]


As they share a fairly unusual surname then it seems likely that bride and groom are related in some way. Cousins perhaps?
